Card Layout Challenge #270

This week’s challenge was suggested by Barb Ingerson.  Barb admired the folded card that Yvonne Jenks, a long time member of OSA, made for a mingle.  I agreed!  Yvonne was so generous in providing us with directions for her card.  I also was lucky that Yvonne sent me a RAK of one these cards.  Thank you, Yvonne!

Card Layout #270


  • Start with a 8.5″ x 11″ card stock
  • Cut 2″ off for a 6″ x 11.5″ piece
  • Crease card stock at 1.5″, 1.5″‘ 2.5″, 2.5″.  Please Note:  if a Score-Pal is being used, the creases are made at 3″, 5.5″, 8″, and 9.5″
  • Fold the first 1.5″ as a mountain fold
  • Fold the second 1.5″ as a valley fold
  • Fold the first 2.5″ as a mountain fold
  • Fold the second 2.5 as a valley fold
  • Decorate folds with stamp images and or decorated papers
  • Cut a 1″x7″ strip, fold in half and use double sided tape or glue at the ends; slide over the card to “close” card.

****Remember, your card design must be oriental in nature. There must be at least one stamped item on your card.

I invite you to create a card using this week’s challenge. Upload it to your personal photo album. This can be an OSA gallery album, an OSA Yahoo! Photo album, Flickr, PictureTrail, etc. Then post a link to your artwork HERE in the comments section when you have completed our challenge. Or, you can also post a link to your artwork on OSA. Come back on Sunday to see who has taken the challenge this week!

Do you want your design featured? Just email me (Sonia E.) your original design and you will be featured in an upcoming challenge this year!
